Take one Styrofoam cup, crush some ice, add your favorite flavored syrup, scoop on some "sea foam" and you've got a local summer treat called a sno ball.

The 8- to 15-year-old crowd makes up the majority of the customer base in the local sno ball business, which consists of at least two stands, but no more than four, according to sno ball consumers.
